In order to mitigate cyber-attacks on your business infrastructure, it is necessary to utilize comprehensive network and application security assessments that reveal any security holes and potential vulnerabilities in your systems that could be exploited by malicious hackers.
These types of passive and active assessments would allow you to improve the security posture of your systems and harden your infrastructure to negate any possible, future cyber-attacks on your business, which could cause you to lose revenue, a damaged reputation, customer dissatisfaction, and more.
Completing security assessments on your networks and applications let you rest assured that your data, business infrastructure and systems are safe and secure and that you are reducing security risks and threats to your business by implementing state-of-the-art security controls that protect you, your business, and your customers.
It is important for you to understand how to stay protected during this time of increasingly complex security risks that could potentially cripple your systems. Rapidly evolving technologies - along with many different types of frameworks, operating systems, and hacking techniques - make staying ahead of cyber-criminals very difficult. We can help you and your team not only stop attackers in their tracks, but also help to prevent future attacks. This unique combination of software infrastructures presents a large number of attack surfaces and potential vulnerabilities that attackers may take advantage of. Mobile application security should thus be a very paramount sector within any business. We can accomplish the task of ensuring application security using static source code review with a broad range of platforms and frameworks, across all major mobile operating systems.
As software, operating systems, applications, and systems are replaced by new ones, the old ones are often analyzed by hackers and exploited when vulnerabilities are found. This is a dangerous scenario since older systems are often susceptible to cyberattacks if they are not patched. At the same time, newer systems are often built on similar non-secure foundations, which allows hackers to build on previous techniques and utilize new ones to both exploit older systems and to develop new ways to exploit existing systems. Thus, keeping up with hackers - and better yet, staying a step ahead of them – requires:
- knowing the foundational security flaws of a system
- correcting them
- conducting periodic assessments of all systems
Making sure that newly discovered security holes are identified - and corrected - by you before they are discovered and exploited by hackers. It is also important to note the use of automated tools and frameworks that cyber-criminals use in order to quickly exploit systems based on certain parameters. The only way to protect yourself from these types of multifaceted attacks is by hardening systems, utilizing defense in depth, developing apps with secure coding practices, utilizing proper and timely patch management, and keeping systems secure and maintained.
This can only be done when the security posture is analyzed by multiple security assessments, ranging from static analysis of applications and manual code review to dynamic analysis. Security professionals can assist you with understanding more about modern security threats and risks, and can assess your security posture to mitigate any future cyber-attacks against your business.
Using a multi-faceted security approach we perform comprehensive assessments of both applications and networks to ensure that all of your systems are secure and protected and all of your vulnerabilities are documented.
We perform dynamic analysis assessments to locate vulnerabilities, security holes, exploitable errors, and more, which is all accomplished at run-time to better understand how an attacker could take advantage of a running application in order to exploit it. Dynamic penetration tests provide a better perspective of how secure your applications are from an attacker's perspective, while also revealing potential attack vectors that an attacker could use, along with potential vulnerabilities that could be exploited. This manual testing procedure often uses automated. We also perform static analysis assessments, which include manual and automated analysis of the code using proprietary tools along with manual code review by security engineers.
These steps are necessary to fully discover security holes in your applications which could allow an attacker to discover and exploit weak cryptographic ciphers & backdoors, bypass authentication protocols, and exploit framework-specific vulnerabilities that may exist. This type of test reveals specific details of your application's security posture that could otherwise go unnoticed. A hybrid assessment uses both dynamic assessments and static assessments to offer complete application coverage. This is a comprehensive way to determine how well password policies, PIN utilization, authentication protocols, data storage, data validation, and authorization parameters work in real-time.
It is pivotal that both network and application systems are assessed. To aid you in this goal we conduct both vulnerability scans and deep network penetration tests. These determine if security controls that are in place are operating correctly (i.e. WAFs, firewalls, IDSs, etc.), if any vulnerabilities exist that can be exploited, and possible attack vectors that can be used to compromise the system (exploitation), and to sustain control of the compromised system (post-exploitation), using malware, rootkits, backdoors, etc.
Differing from a passive vulnerability test, an active penetration test simulates the activities of a hacker to disable and bypass security controls in order to take control of your systems and to maintain that control. This test is as significant as a vulnerability scan, and together they reveal a complete picture of how secure your systems are.
Data security is one of the most important IT sectors that you may deal with daily, and with the increase of cybercrimes, exploits, malware in the wild, and hacking incidents, the data of your company and of your customers is at stake. Such data can be used for the complete compromise of your systems, for social engineering, and for other nefarious practices that can ultimately destroy your business' infrastructure and reputation. Along with becoming compliant with data security laws, maintaining a secure business is a matter of keeping you and your customers' data secure in order to ensure safe operations of your environment and to maintain the trust of your customers.
Possible vulnerabilities in your networks and applications can result in monetary damage and damage to your reputation. Use proper security assessments to stop unauthorized access to your systems and to secure your business, which ultimately secures the data-driven future of your customers.
